The Washington Redskins have had a very busy and as most people feel a very successful off-season thus far and on Monday their roster was handed yet another boost.

Veteran Safety Tanard Jackson will finally make his return to the NFL after serving a two year ban for violating the League's policy on substance abuse.

Jackson has now served his second suspension for violating the league policy and will join a positional class of Brandon Meriweather and Ryan Clark.

Jackson was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft then signed with the Redskins in 2011.

The 28-year-old has started all 56 games in his career and brought about 10 interceptions and five forced fumbles.

Jackson has yet to play for the Redskins but will no doubt be seen as a wild card addition to their roster for what should be a good upcoming season for Washington fans.
